About Our Art

Although people generally select a martial arts school for reasons other than the martial arts style taught at the school (e.g., reputation, location, character-development emphasis, family focus) it’s still good to have a general understanding of the styles of martial arts before beginning a search for the best school for you.

Our style of martial arts training is called Taekwondo, and Phoenix Academy is directly affiliated with the World Taekwondo Organization headquarters at the Kukkiwon in Seoul, South Korea. All our Black Belt students are awarded a numbered and registered Dan Certificate from World Taekwondo that is recognized worldwide.

To learn about Taekwondo in comparison to the other martial arts styles, you should read our free report, which provides an overview of all the main styles of martial arts. To access this report, just click on this link:

Phoenix Academy is a family friendly environment that promotes community, respect, discipline, camaraderie, fitness, and hard work. We believe that people learn best when it is a journey shared with friends. Our motto is to “Never Give Up” and we live that in every class by perfecting our skills and helping each other succeed through a positive attitude and lots of encouragement.

In reading this report you’ll see that the style differences are primarily in the physical aspects of the art (e.g., more or less emphasis on kicking, punching and throwing).

We obviously believe that Taekwondo is the best of the martial arts relative to the physical aspects. But what makes Phoenix Black Belt Academy special is that our training goes far beyond the kick, the punch and the throw. We also place a strong emphasis on the personal development of our students.

While we are experts in teaching Taekwondo techniques, a large focus of our training is on developing the following personal attributes in our students: self confidence, focus, discipline, fitness, healthy weight and self-esteem.

The development of these personal attributes is inherent within all martial arts but, at Phoenix Black Belt Academy, we put a special emphasis on maximizing our student’s potential in all aspects of their life.


Why Choose Phoenix Black Belt Academy as Your Martial Arts School ?

Are you seeking a path to a better working body, a sharper and more focused mind, increased self-confidence, enhanced self-discipline, and the ability to physically defend yourself? Look no further than Phoenix Black Belt Academy in Dubai, UAE. Our academy offers more than just kicking and punching; it’s a place where you can achieve physical fitness, character development, and self-defense skills.

The Power of Martial Arts for Personal Development

Many people mistakenly perceive martial arts as solely focused on fighting, but at Dubai Martial Arts, we prioritize personal growth through martial arts practice. This emphasis on self-improvement is what attracts most individuals to our academy.

According to statistics from the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association, nearly half of the six million martial arts participants are children aged 6-17. Additionally, around one-third of our students are adults, often making it a family affair.

Regardless of the specific martial arts discipline you choose—be it karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitsu, judo, aikido, tai chi, kendo, or any other form—the styles may differ, but the benefits remain consistent.

Universal Benefits of Martial Arts Training

To gain insight into the specific advantages for different age groups, please refer to the adult and children program pages on our website. Here, we highlight some of the universal benefits you can expect from practicing martial arts:

1. Improved Physical Fitness: Martial arts is more than just a workout; it’s a comprehensive physical training regimen. By engaging in martial arts, you will witness noticeable enhancements in stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and overall strength.

2. Enhanced Self-Esteem: As you acquire martial arts skills and enhance your physical condition, your self-assurance will flourish in all aspects of life. Whether you find yourself in dangerous situations or simply stepping out of your comfort zone, your newfound confidence will make you virtually “bully-proof.” This is particularly significant for children.

3. Increased Focus and Concentration: Right from your first day at Phoenix Black Belt Academy, you will be challenged not only physically but also mentally. Martial arts training requires you to think critically while executing movements. By learning the various forms and techniques, you will strengthen your working memory. Notably, the Mayo Clinic acknowledges karate and taekwondo as effective therapies for individuals with ADD and ADHD.

4. Enhanced Social Skills: Martial arts places a strong emphasis on self-discipline and self-control, integral aspects of our teachings. By cultivating these qualities, students develop self-leadership and mature ways of dealing with others, fostering strong social skills.

5. Stress Relief: Whether you’re a child or an adult, kicking, punching, and shouting during martial arts practice can serve as an excellent release for stress and pent-up emotions. It provides a healthy outlet to let go of tension and rejuvenate your mind.

6. Respect for Values: Our curriculum is designed to instill core values such as honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, and excellence. By embracing these principles, both children and adults can develop into exceptional leaders within their communities.
